Esme Bianco Con of Thrones

There’s amazing news today: we have fresh Con of Thrones news for you all! Three special guests have been added to the line-up for the 2018 edition of the con, taking place this year in Dallas, TX. We’re so pleased to announce that Game of Thrones cast members Esmé Bianco (Ros), Kate Dickie (Lysa Arryn), and Aimee Richardson (Myrcella Baratheon) have joined the guest lineup!

Esmé Bianco is a new face to con this year, well-known for her role as Ros, beginning with the very first episode of Game of Thrones. In addition to her work on GoT, Bianco has had a recurring role on SYFY’s The Magicians, and appeared in feature films such as Burlesque Fairytales, The Big I Am, Dead Man Running, and The Scorpion King 4: Quest for Power.

Kate Dickie Con of Thrones

Kate Dickie is a returning con favorite for 2018. The Scottish actress made her mark on GoT as the unpredictable Lysa Arryn. In addition to Thrones, she has a lengthy film CV including Prometheus, Star Wars: The Last Jedi, The Witch, and Couple in a Hole, and the miniseries adaptation of The Pillars of the Earth.

Aimee Richardson Con of Thrones

Another returning favorite, Aimee Richardson made her professional screen debut in Miss Conception when she was nine years old playing a young Heather Graham. She went on to play Princess Myrcella Baratheon in Season 1 and 2 of GoT. Since leaving Thrones, Aimee has played Althea in the BBC’s The Sparticle Mystery, Gemma in Dinosaurs, and most recently as Minn in the BBC series My Mother and Other Strangers.

    1. So exciting! I cannot wait to see Aimee and Kate Dickie again, she’s one of the nicest, funniest, most genuine people I’ve ever had the privilege to meet. And I’m so pumped for Ros! Yaaasss Con!

    2. Kate was amazing. Would be worth a ticket if you’ve not heard her before. If you stay there, wander the halls, and she will find you and invite you to dinner.

      Esme sounds delightful, from what I’ve heard of her interviews.

      Not sure what Aimee will have to talk about, other than further discussion about her resentment about being replaced. As long as Kerry Ingram is attending too, they’ll at least be able to hang out together.

    3. I remember being surprised by Esmé Bianco 2nd season. From season one I thought maybe she was a kind of ‘decoration’ ,a glorified extra serving a specific purpose. I was wrong , by 2nd season, she appeared as a fully realized character and gave exceptional performances S2 and S3. I don’t think has gotten the recognition she deserved.

      So happy Esme is joining us and Kate and Aimee are returning! I hope Esme participates in panels! I would love to hear her perspective on Littlefinger.

    5. I miss Ros. Not a major player in the show, but was a solid supporting character. Too bad she had to meet her fate at the hands of freaking Joffrey, but at least her death was part of the greatest montage GoT has ever done.

      And the winner of best sexposition scene goes to….*drumroll*…

    6. I’m glad to see Aimee has had other parts since leaving GoT. I know very little about Esme but I’m sure she’s nice and Kate does come across in interviews as being pleasant.
